Hopefully by now you have all read the files I posted to prep for this topic.  If not, you still have a little time before I pick the first passage we’ll look at.  I will be posting excerpts during the discussion from Beale and Carson’s (eds) Commentary on the Use of the OT in the NT — a resource you should all have.  Here is the introduction to that volume to read before the next post (more homework). I don’t want to be constantly reminding people to be familiar with the background issues, so please read this.

One more item. I can’t decide which passage to start with. I have a few candidates, but I thought I’d take suggestions. Some of my hesitation stems from not knowing who can follow Greek and Hebrew (in transliteration or otherwise). Some of these passages are gnarly.  Let me know any preferences.
